The whole team is thrilled to announce their success at last week’s Devon Tourism Awards 2021/22! This year the awards were slightly different, with the event taking place virtually via Zoom. There was a still excitement in the air as Museum Director, Pippa Griffith, waited to hear how we had got on in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category.

Picking up the Silver Award in this category is a great achievement in what has been a tricky year for the museum, navigating our way through the challenges created by the pandemic. It’s a brilliant reflection of the hard work the whole team, not least our dedicated volunteers, put in to making our museum award winning.

We were even more surprised to hear this week that we have been awarded Commended Status at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2021/22! A huge thank you to all our volunteers for making this possible.
